In his eighty years of existence, Dick Grayson has held many titles and roles; acrobat, Robin the Boy Wonder, Teen Titan, various undercover identities and even Batman sometimes, but it is his identity as Nightwing that he is perhaps now most recognized for; one that was adopted nearly forty years ago. Chapter three feels a little forced as it's a random Deadman guest shot that takes place when Dick takes a brief side trip to rejoin the circus and we learn that the Flying Graysons knew Boston Brand, but I'll excuse the tacked on nature as Scott McDaniel draws both an awesome Deadman and fantastic aerial scenes. Nightwing: Year One is a fun and entertaining graphic novel that shows Dick Grayson’s transition from Robin to Nightwing.

While that is a fair assessment, it does not take into account the uniqueness that this story holds. The second chapter is probably my favorite as it's a (almost)Nightwing/Superman team-up and I love Nightwing/Superman team-ups. Dixon gets right up in Dick's headspace perfectly and illustrates perfectly all the stuff I just wrote above about why Nightwing is such a wonderful character. This leads to the realization he needs to find a place to "come home to" and, although he tries the circus, he turns instead to becoming a hero in his own right, comes back to Gotham and finds himself. But honestly, it was so refreshing to see Grayson come into his own as Nightwing and about damn time.In the stories from 1984, we see very little of Dick's thought process on why he chose his new identity. They're worthy continuations of the Batman story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's excellent Long Halloween and Dark Victory. Besides that, if you've got access to a decent library of trades and back issues, you can follow Dick's journey from adolescense to manhood like he were a family friend who dressed up in tights and lost his family in a freak circus accident. His Punisher OGN Kingdom Gone (August, 1990) led to him working on the monthly The Punisher War Journal (and later, more monthly and occasional Punisher titles), and also brought him to the attention of DC Comics editor Denny O'Neil, who asked him to produce a Robin mini-series.

He is (along with artist Graham Nolan) the creator of the Batman villain Bane, the first permanent addition to the Dark Knight's rogues gallery in 40 years and for which he won 1993's Wizard Fan Award for best new character.So if you enjoyed the Titans show’s story of how Dick became Nightwing, I would recommend this story as a fine complement to further your appreciation of the character’s transformation. I picked up this book expecting the story of Dick Grayson's transition from Robin to Nightwing, which I got, and was surprised to find it also serves as something of an origin story for Jason Todd as Robin. Like, I'm not entirely sure how old Dick is here but the next thing we see, he's bunking in a motel because he's broke.

Learn the legendary history of Dick Grayson and his life after Batman fired him, as he gains advice from Superman, aids Deadman, and makes the decisions that lead him to become a new crimefighter! A lot of great Bat Family moments especially with Dick and Barbara, I love their dynamic in the early years of Gotham before the Bat Family got overwhelmingly larger. The main problem with this story is Batman who is written as quite a cruel, cold and manipulative boss when the action really kicks off later in the story he gets layed out on the sidelines, although this does give Alfred the chance to shine. The appeal of Jason Todd--at least, in theory--would be that he would be Robin, but that he would be tougher and more complicated than the clean, mostly do-right Dick Grayson. Finally, Nightwing confronts the new Robin, Jason Todd, revealing a good deal about the character and his changing self-image.Nightwing's is a neat niche since most comic fans grow up relating to Robin and wanting to someday be Batman (or so DC hopes), but there's a whole period between 10 and 30 where you'd like a happy medium as your window to that four color kingdom.
